M-Media talked with a local resident this morning.

“Attacked started since yesterday evening and ended at 5:30 in the morning. About 10 houses were destroyed. The mob was as large as 1,000 people. The Buddhist monk himself drove bulldozer to destroy the houses. They are now taking away properties from the houses. I am hearing noises. Police are there, going on the street but they don’t do anything. They just took photographs, but they don’d do anything else. No one is reported dead yet. But one traveler from Yangon, named Kyaw Soe Moe was chopped with sword. He has been sent to Kyopinkauk hospital. He is about 50 years old and he sells eyewear in Yangon. Up to know, nobody comes to ask anything or help us.”

M-Media will update the situations.
